Come and join in, it’s absolutely FREE! Here at Social Circle we are lucky, not only to live in one of the greatest cities in the world, but to be surrounding by exceptional walking routes. Come along and explore walking in Manchester and surrounding areas, and meet some new people along the way.

We start our 6 mile circular walk at The Shoulder of Mutton Pub where free parking is available. This (sometimes strenuous) circular walk gives us everything; spectacular views woodland, riverside rambling and heritage.

Peel Tower is a monument to Sir Robert Peel, born in Bury, who as Home Secretary was responsible for founding the modern police force and as Prime Minister repealed the Corn Laws. William Grant was Chairman of the appeal committee which erected the Tower and arranged for it to be constructed on a line from his front door beyond the steeple of St Andrew’s Church.

We cross Holcombe Moor (owned by the National Trust) and over Harcles Hill. Continue along this path for a mile to Pilgrims’ Cross. Pilgrim’s Cross is a marker on the pilgrim route from Manchester to Whalley Abbey. The present stone marks the site of earlier ones which have existed since at least 1166. We then cross Buckden Wood and the Stubbins Estate were given to the National Trust in 1948 by Colonel Porritt in memory of his son Richard, who was killed at Dunkirk. The farmland includes the only grassland SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) in the West Pennines.

Once we've completed our lake walk we will head back to the Shoulder of Mutton Pub for a well-deserved Sunday lunch. http://theshoulderofmuttonholcombe.co.uk
